In 2005 antibiotic resistant infections killed more Americans than
HIV/AIDS and the number of lives claimed by these so-called "superbugs"
has only increased. Now more than two million people acquire
antibiotic-resistant infections in the U.S. each year, and more than
100,000 die as a result.
Although the dangers are real, there is
some cause for hope. Our goal is to help clarify and raise awareness
about this vital issue. We believe that once people are better informed
they will begin talking, and eventually acting to make things better.
We've just started production. Check facebook.com/resistancethefilm for details. There's more to come soon.
